STEPPING TOWARDS IMPROVED MOBILITY
Gait rehabilitation is a major aspect of neurological rehabilitation. Locomotion therapy supported by an automated gait orthosis on a treadmill has shown to be an effective intervention for improving over-ground walking function caused by neurological diseases and injuries in many cases. The Lokomat® system assists walking movements of gait-impaired patients and is used to improve mobility in individuals following stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis as well as other neurological diseases and injuries.
Since its arrival on the market, the Lokomat®Pro has been a crucial improvement in the art and science of locomotion therapy. The product is based on research and development activities at the Balgrist University Hospital.
DX® MAINTENANCE-FREE BEARINGS FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE OPERATION
The Lokomat®Pro is equipped with several GGB DX® composite bearings in knee and hip joints of the locomotion therapy apparatus. GGB’s high performance bearings were selected according to strict specifications and proved to be an ideal fit for the Lokomat®Pro, offering numerous benefits:
GGB composite bearings have proven to be the best choice for the Locomat®Pro, featuring the lowest bearing clearance, extended bearing service life and zero-maintenance operation throughout the service life of the equipment.
